    From what I've seen, there are no liberal media left in the US. I hope I'm wrong, but it certainly doen't look like it from here.

    The existence of US Liberal Media is a myth started by Spiro Agnew when he tried to deflect investigations into his financial dealings as govenor of Maryland, and the myth has been used ever since by right-wing elements in our society to brow-beat criticsim. When photojournalism was still seen as an honest portrayer of events, it could have an unintentional liberal slant. Thanks to Photoshop, it's lost its honesty.

    "What Liberal Media?" by Eric Alterman is an excellent book worth reading if you're interested in the subject. The supposed liberal media really is little more than a popular myth, and this book does a good job explaining it.

    There are liberal entities in the media world, but you will find very few considered mainstream. Most are worried about corporate money and advertising. Corporate money is often very conservative.

    The truth is out there you just have to filter the crap from both sides. Both sides have agendas they try to get across.

    These are not textbook definitions, but my own.

    A conservative tends to promote self-fulfillment, self-reliance and generally supports the idea that people are at their best when striving for something. Consequences for an individual's behavior are concrete and fully owned by the individual.

    A liberal seeks to remove the consequences of an individual's behavior from the actions (insulation).
    Examples: Abortion, food stamps for families who have too many children and must rely on others to feed them, governmnet welfare programs in general.
